Confessions of a Science Communicator


Speaker: Dr Claire Malone, MInstP

In this talk, I discuss the many benefits to researchers of being active science communicators - for themselves, for the wider scientific community and for society as a whole. I share my own journey as a science communicator, initially speaking at conferences aimed at raising the profile of underrepresented groups in science such as the LGBT+ and disabled communities, through to delivering my TED talk at Abbey Road Studios. I now focus on overcoming the challenges that often prevent effective science communication and assisting fellow scientists to do the same, taking the field of psychedelic medicine as a case study, where researchers can need to counteract entrenched biases in order to share their findings.
